Dividends4Life: Best Dividend Paying Stocks With A Low Beta

Best Dividend Paying Stocks With A Low Beta

Posted by D4L | Thursday, March 14, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Beta is a measure of the volatility or risk of a security in comparison to the market as a whole. A beta of less than one means that the security is less volatile than the market. Typically, stocks with less volatility are non-cyclical. They move in the same direction as the market at large and are less susceptible to day-to-day fluctuations. For this article I've researched dividend paying companies with low beta.

As global economic uncertainty adds to market volatility, investors may want to add some low beta dividend paying stocks to their holdings to reduce their overall portfolio volatility: Avago Technologies (NASDAQ: AVGO), Hot Topic (NASDAQ: HOTT) and Healthcare Services Group (NASDAQ: HCSG).

Most investors prefer companies that pay dividends. But to generate safe and stable income in a volatile market environment, low beta dividend stocks are the way to go. With stable cash reserves, decent growth forecasts, and low beta, these dividend stocks offer investors a valuable source of regular income as well as the potential for long-term capital appreciation.
